What is Oxycodone?
Oxycodone, also known as Percocet, is a powerful opioid analgesic that is commonly prescribed to treat moderate to severe pain. It is a semi-synthetic opioid derived from thebaine, an alkaloid found in opium. This prescription opiate painkiller is highly addictive and can cause serious physical and psychological dependence.
Oxycodone is available in several dose forms, including immediate-release tablets, extended-release tablets, and an oral solution. The usual dose range for immediate-release oxycodone is 5 to 30 mg every 4 to 6 hours as needed for pain, while the usual dose range for extended-release oxycodone is 10 to 160 mg once daily. The oral solution typically comes in a 5 mg/5 mL concentration.
Signs and Symptoms of Oxycodone Addiction
There are a variety of signs and symptoms of oxycodone addiction. Some of the most common signs and symptoms include:
Taking oxycodone more frequently than prescribed, or taking it in higher doses than prescribed.

Our Oxycodone Detox in Georgia
Medical detox is the first step in oxycodone addiction treatment, as it allows a person to get the drug out of their system and start the process of recovery. It is important to note that medical detox alone is not enough to treat oxycodone addiction; it must be followed by additional treatment, such as medication-assisted treatment, inpatient rehab, and aftercare and support group services.
Individuals detoxing from oxycodone will typically experience some of the following withdrawal symptoms or side effects:
Withdrawal symptoms can vary in intensity and duration based on the individual and the severity of the dependence.
The medical staff of our oxycodone detox in Georgia will monitor clients 24/7 while they are in detox and provide medications that help reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings.
There are several medications that we use to help clients detox from oxycodone. Some of the most commonly used of these medications include:
- Buprenorphine: A partial opioid agonist that can help alleviate withdrawal symptoms and reduce cravings.
- Clonidine: A non-opioid medication that can help manage symptoms such as anxiety, agitation, and insomnia.
- Naltrexone: A medication that blocks the effects of opioids, and can help reduce cravings and prevent relapse.
Please note that we do not utilize methadone in our MAT or medical detox programs.
Our Inpatient Oxycodone Addiction Treatment Program
Our drug rehab center in Georgia provides intensive therapy and counseling to help clients overcome their oxycodone addictions. Clients generally stay in our residential program for 30 to 90 days and receive individual and group therapy in order to address the underlying issues that are contributing to their addiction.
This level of care provides a structured environment that helps individuals stay focused on their recovery and avoid triggers that may lead to relapse. Our oxycodone addiction treatment programs offer evidence-based treatment options, such as behavioral therapy, medication-assisted treatment (MAT), and holistic therapies, which have been shown to be effective in treating opioid addiction.
Inpatient rehab can be an effective treatment plan for oxycodone addiction, as it allows clients to focus entirely on their recovery in a safe and supportive environment without many distractions. It provides a supportive community of individuals who are also in recovery, which can help individuals feel less isolated and increase their chances of success.
Our Medication-assisted treatment program involves the use of medications, such as buprenorphine and naltrexone, to reduce cravings and aid in recovery. These medications can help a person manage their physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms and stay on track with their recovery.
Medication-assisted treatment is typically used in combination with other treatment methods, such as inpatient rehab and aftercare, and support group services.
Aftercare and Support Group Services
Aftercare and support group services are an important part of oxycodone addiction treatment. They provide ongoing support and resources for people in recovery. These groups can help a person stay on track with their recovery and prevent relapse. Some of the most common types of aftercare and support groups include 12-step programs, sober living houses, and recovery coaches.
Holistic Therapies For Oxycodone Addiction
Our residential treatment program offers a variety of holistic therapies to support individuals during the opioid addiction recovery process. The goal of these therapies is to help individuals reduce physical and psychological stress, enhance their overall well-being, and improve their chances of success during and after the detoxification process.
Yoga has become an increasingly popular complementary therapy for addiction treatment in recent years. The benefits of yoga for addiction treatment include:
- Stress Reduction: Practicing yoga can help reduce stress and anxiety, which are often underlying factors in addiction. By reducing stress levels, individuals are less likely to turn to drugs or alcohol to cope.
- Mindfulness: Yoga is a practice that emphasizes being present in the moment and cultivating awareness of thoughts and emotions. This can be especially helpful for individuals in recovery, who may have a tendency to ruminate on past mistakes or worry about the future.
- Improved Physical Health: Addiction can take a toll on the body, and yoga can help individuals regain physical health and vitality. Through regular practice, yoga can improve flexibility, strength, balance, and circulation.
- Emotional Regulation: Yoga can also help individuals regulate their emotions, which is an important skill for addiction recovery. By practicing self-awareness and self-compassion, individuals can better manage difficult emotions that may arise during the recovery process.
- Community Support: Many addiction treatment centers offer yoga classes as part of their program, which can help individuals connect with others who are also in recovery. This sense of community can be a powerful tool for staying sober and building a support system.
By incorporating yoga into their recovery plan, individuals may be better equipped to overcome addiction and maintain long-term sobriety.
